1967 250s engine tick

sounds like I need lifters tightened when my 1967 250s inline 6 warms up almost sounds like a diesel but with a SHOC i dont know what to do. do i just take valve cover off and start to tighten and how much do I tighten ? The car is running great it is just loud any ideas? thanks

It is called a valve adjustment. You need a special 17mm crowfoot wrench , feeler gauges and specs. I would suggest a shop manual.

At 20 C the intake should be 0,10mm and exhaust 0,20mm
At 60 C : intake 0,15mm and exhaust 0,25mm

The data I have is for the 250 engine that's in the W114 chassi. But it's the same engine..

And it should be 14 and 16mm not 14 and 17..

There is no lock nut on that engine.

Not part of the in-crowd since 1952. It's BRAKES not breaks. You break a bone, use brakes to stop your car. /rant

I'm not familiar with any other books for the Mercedes than the original workshop-manuals. (Hard to find, usually)
And the mentioned book.. The book tells you all you need to know about the engine, drivetrain and most of the suspension.. And afaik, the closest and cheapest you can get to a workshop manual..
Just as I needed to buy a book for the W123, to get a manual on the M110 engine in my W126 280SE.. You take what you get..

Maybee the car came later in the US, but the W108 model came in 1967, and lasted until 1971 So your chassi should be in that book... Do you have a link ?
